"Safety for the College Community"

Welcome to Santa Monica College, where the safety and
well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors is our
first priority.

The mission of the Santa Monica College Police Department is to provide law enforcement, crime prevention, investigation, security, parking and traffic control services to the large school community. Our officers are dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment by working closely with all college stakeholders, local law enforcement agencies, and the community at large in a collaborative effort to prevent crime and ensure the safety of everyone on campus.


Crime prevention is everyone’s business. Our website is part of an ongoing effort to ensure that we all continue to work together to foster a safer environment for our campus community
